This guidebook explores how the community literacy plan, a reporting requirement for ongoing literacy funding, can be completed. But more importantly, this guide provides task groups and literacy outreach coordinators with a tool to maintain the community literacy process. It discusses roles and responsibilities, how the work gets done, how resources are allocated, and how collaboration offers the best chance at sustaining this work and demonstrating its value to others. In addition, this guidebook provides information about the community literacy planning process, including lessons learned since community literacy planning began in 2004. Information includes why this work is so important, how it’s being done, and how to continue to improve literacy in communities through sustained commitment and evaluation.
